The National Union of Students Women's Campaign is an autonomous campaign within the National Union of Students (NUS) of the United Kingdom that campaigns for women's liberation. During the academic year 2013-2014, for example, the campaign sought to address "lad culture" in education, the rights of students who are also carers and, through its Women in Leadership project, the underrepresentation of women.

Hareem Ghani was elected as National Women's Officer for 2016-2017. Ghani intends to campaign on issues concerning student-staff misconduct, black mental health and tackling violence against women.
